Ode to Rise AgainstThe band spoke not to the masses,Ode to Rise Against6 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
but to those whose wrists wore slashes.
Their words lacked a semblance of formality,
but were meant for those with abnormality.
The message was for all those whose pain was immense;
it told them it was time to rise, Rise Against.
Rise Against the injustice and pain.
Defend the memory of the slain.
Stand for those who are helpless.
Always try to be selfless.
Work hard for better futures.
Treat the world's wounds with sutures.
Rise Against their pseudo-perfection.
With music, they gave us direction.
Do not let yourself be tame.
Do not give in to their game.
Fight back, but not with violence,

Is not a warning
To dwell upon
Until His coming
Shall we be waiting?
Our Lord's return!?
Our task is given!
It has been written!
We have a mission!
That must be done!
To shine our light
Make the world bright
Present this sight
As his welcome
For when Christ cometh
Though no man knoweth
In faith we soweth
We faithful ones
Think not of when
Think not of where
We must prepare
Until He comes

"If you saw me, why didn't you say anything?"
"Aha! So you admit it! Well, last night, my father mentioned he saw a light on in my room. I never turn on my lights. So, again, what where you doing there. I know it was you."
"Listen, it's not what you think..."
"Really?" Jen's voice had a sarcastic twinge to it.

The Town XIISo far, the plan had been working. They had been doing it for five months. Five months, and they still hadn't been caught. The night before, Azriel had come over for their book meeting. Jen had all the books packed away in her purse. She sat at the cheaply made table, and tried to eat her breakfast. Her father had just left a minute before. Jen remembered there being something about him being reassigned to some new job, but she didn't really pay attention. She never paid attention to anyone any more, except Azriel. There was no point, she would be caught, and most definitely banished. That was the only punishment. They had stop full-blown exeThe Town XII2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The Town XITwo weeks had passed, and no sign of Azriel. Jen had stayed up every night extremely late, waiting for him. She had waited for him every day at the street corner, then at the library. He never showed. Now, as she sat in the attic, holding a book that she hadn't even started to read, she was sure of one thing: he had to be turning her in. That had to be it. She looked back at how stupid it had been to give away her deepest secret to someone she hadn't even known for a week.The Town XI2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

A Dreadful DillemaI want to make a storyA Dreadful Dillema1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
sadly I'm on a jeepney
I want to make a story
just to see things clearly
I plotted things in my head
But those plotted things from my head
turned into chaotic knots like a thread
It's the story of life, that I've read
There were thousands of possbilities
But everything got complicated
Like the sound of the harmonies
that make up all the songs
my thoughts got conquered
by the noise of the world
Distractions from motions
Annoyance from commotions
I just wanted to write a story
It's not such a mystery
Perhaps it's just the world just telling me
To continue the unfinished tales
That I've long been trying

Since no one would for her
Candles or lights?
She chose the former
Struck a match with her hands
Ignored the sweet scent
Stared at the flames
Then into the bathtub she went
The water was scalding
But she forced herself to take it
Besides, she'd take long
And the warm water had to make it
The one who said he loved her
Was so preoccupied
That he had no idea hours had gone by
When he was ready for bed
He found she wasn't out
And she needed to be,
there were hungry kids running about
There were dishes to wash
And laundry to do
And when he went to sleep
She couldn't sleep
